Within my work as a police officer, I have had the privilege of working with Viktoria on issues related to prostitution and human trafficking for sexual purposes.
Viktoria has a deep commitment to these issues and her willingness to work to help society's most vulnerable people is very inspiring.
With her long experience and broad knowledge of prostitution and trafficking issues, Viktoria has been a great asset to me and my colleagues in the Police prostitution unit.
